What is the JABC Business Challenge Online?
The JABC Business Challenge Online is an online competition where students work in teams of three to manage a virtual company in our simulated marketplace which responds to changing economic conditions. Student managers must out-smart other companies competing for market share and financial success. Challenge games are based on the concepts and strategies students learn in the JA Titan program.
JABC uses MARKET MANEUVERS ONLINE (formerly CEMSIM) for our Business Challenge competitions.
MARKET MANEUVERS offers:
- Province-wide participation
- Teacher passwords enabling you to set up practice games exclusive to your own students
- Direct online registration for Challenge competitions
- Richer & more complex game scenarios
